First foraging foray

First the ducks came out for a swim. OK, "came" is a relative term -- I tossed the first one through the hatch door and the second raced along to see where she went!

They were enjoying a peaceful swim on their own. Sort of a "Calgon, take me away!" moment.

Then one chick was enticed through the hatch by some clover on the ramp.

Then another, then another until four or five were waddling right behind their fearless-leader-duck-friends.

Dolly Chicken stretched her legs to examine the greenery.

And while the babies were wandering, the adults had a drink at the pool!

Very fun to read about.

Funny, yup, sometimes they have to have some encouragement. Love the pictures.
